Solenoid valves replacement
There are several solenoid valves on that transmission. But generally you remove the oil pan, drain the fluid, remove the valve body and then swap out the solenoids. Not usually a DIY project.

What are the probable causes of DTC P1633?
Replace the wire at pin 44 to where ever it goes to. With key on it should be 12+ volts. engine running should be the voltage alternator puts out. If the PCM supplies the 12 volts, then pull the connector and look for corrosion. White to greenish color. If OK, I would cut the wire a few inches from the connector and check voltage. If it went up, replace the wire, if not the corrosion could be in the PCM. I take them apart and clean them also. Use brake clean.

Can you mess a battery up by charging it over night
I assume the car would not start, that was the reason for charging the battery in the first place? Most modern battery chargers have a circuit that as the battery "fills up", drop the amperage to maintenance level or 2 amps. Pull the battery and have it checked. I would also have the alternator checked. It may not be working wright.

Why does battery go dead in two days?
If goes dead while driving not charging possible bad alternator. If goes dead regardless of driving probably a power drain somewhere. Easy way to test alternator is test battery voltage with a multimeter and make sure at least 12.5. Start car check voltage again and see what it is shot be around 14. If not alternator is most likely bad.
